It's a what?

When we went into town last week we went into Clas Ohlson, my L&M wanted to buy some bungee cords.
Whilst wandering around looking for said bungee cords my L&M spotted something interesting.
He picked it up and waved it at me saying, 'Shall I buy one of these?'
Not realising someone was stood directly behind me I replied 'What is it, sex toy?'
Well that's one young man who now knows that even geriatrics have a dirty sense of humour.

And if you don't know, it's a mooring compensator and I have no idea why my L&M wanted to buy one!
